donkey, or lack thereof. i love the picture. it reminded me of a priceless letter he sent to me in law school when he was over there in the peace corps. chris wrote wonderful notes and told me when he went running in the village where he was staying, only to have locals come up beside him and say where is it, where did it go. where is what? your donkey. i don't have a donkey. >> why are you running? [ laughter] >> for exercise. >> exercise? are you nuts? if you want exercise, come work on my orchard, you crazy american. >> chris succeeded because he knew how to laugh at himself and relate to people around him. there are two more memories i want to share. one deals with government and jazz. chris always wanted to work for the state department. he always wanted to be involved in the foreign service. he took the foreign service exam when we were undergrads at cal. he came back the first time, pleased with results on the written but felt he didn't do so well on the orals. the question that seemed to trip him up and left him perplexed was the following. mr. stevens, please compare american
in the question when i was innocently working on the administrative issues for the law school that i taught, and i was very interested in the idea of academic sports, missions work, and it didn't take long to sort of look at what was happening to sense that something like a mismatch might be important. we were admitting students at ucla with large preferences who have a 90% chance of congratulating the only 50% chance of passing the bar. welcome. so that i cumulatively meant that only 45% of the students with large preferences that were admitting went on to go through law school and get their degrees. it wasn't hard to look at the schools and los angeles where the students with preferences would have gotten in without preference to see that those students seemed to have much better outcomes so i started looking into this and looked for the databases that could help test it, and by 2004, 2005, developed the paper that we first discussed this in the context and found that this was quite a large problem that nationally the great bulk of the minority students especially african-american students were
delegation, six democrats. pennsylvania law speak to the apportioning process. the republican-controlled legislature essentially redrew the congressional boundary lines, moving some seats that were vulnerable in the eastern part of the state, three of them in at the philadelphia suburbs, one of them, one of them in the lehigh valley and one of them up in scranton. basically running the west and south to try to pick up more republicans without getting into the details of it -- karen lives in one of those areas where the boundary lines were redrawn. i do not know which congressman -- that might be in the 15th, with charlie dent. that was the lehigh valley seat. then out comes down to south central pennsylvania. or she could be in a seat held by a republican, lou barletta. that district was redrawn -- that district now comes the whole way down to the state capital, picking up more republicans. here is a way to think about that at the moment -- in competitive terms. nobody believes, independent analysts, nobody believes that of the 18 congressional seats, that more than two of the
-o-u specifically. this ordinance change would be consistent with state law that was authorized the port land for affordable housing. that would be in exchange for the fees that they would be otherwise paying on port property. and it would be essentially a credit to the fees that would be paid in equivalencies. and the land that would be suitable for affordable housing, we would be provided to us at below market rates so that we would be able to use it, then, for future development. and then i'll turn it next to trisha. >> thank you. >> good afternoon, supervisors, trisha, port staff accompanied by the special projects manager. i'd like to just start by thanking supervisor kim for her leadership on this item and i'd like to also thank theresa with the mayor's office of housing for their assistance as well. so, as port staff have articulated through its ten-year capital plan which has been forwarded to the board of supervisors, there are some unique characteristics of port property that drive up the cost of development. we are typically building on filled land which is not seismically based so
designed to collect possible automation in a way that can scrub the laws. so you have these distinctions between methods and the missions of wikileaks versus traditional press such that if the government decides to bring a case in wikileaks i have some confidence that the rest of the press will not be chilled. but, obviously that is a tough line to draw. and it is getting tougher and tougher with more immediate, more news being disseminated by sort of these alternative routes , bloggers and the like. >> so let's do one more question here and then we will take some from the audience and a couple of minutes. so picking up, again, on the judge's comments about -- about some extent of over classification or misclassification and also on cans discussion of the hard issues that are posed by the legitimate was a blow or, the person who legitimately is motivated to disclose some kind of wrongdoing. i once asked about something that we hear a lot in cases about discovery in civil lawsuits. not so much. the idea that, perhaps, something is government conduct is arguably unlawful in some respects,
father-in-law is in chinatown sro, too. my father-in-law's building had this bed bug infestation. when he goes to bed, all the bed bugs come out at night. so he got bitten pretty badly all over the neck, the head. he reported to the manager. the manager just did a real routine thing about the bed bugs. so my father-in-law went to chinatown cdc for help. so that was brought to the attention of the health department. so he couldn't even sleep well at night. so we are really hopeful that the legislation will help people to understand how they are treated and get better. we are living in a pretty bad situation once you have bed bugs. so we hope that we could get this legislation done really fast, so things will get better for us. we thank the supervisors to put such an emphasis on improving the environment for us. thank you. >> thank you. i'm going to call up a couple more name cards. [ reading speakers' names ] >> good afternoon supervisors, thank you, my name is jorge potio, a lifetime resident of san francisco and i want to start by recognizing the hard work that has been put into the

francisco state police department enforce the laws that we do have you would alleviate a lot of the problems. enforce the jay walking rule. enforce the traffic light rules. enforce the laws that we already have in existence. 19th avenue is the most traveled block or street in the city, so enforce the laws that we have on the books. >> all right. thank you sir. mr. yee. >> i also have a similar personal attitude about pedestrian safety. maybe some of you remember six years ago in the niewmp newspaper for several days i got hit by a car crossing the street and crushed my neck and was in the hospital and almost died so this issue is near and dear to me, so the 19th avenue is a unique situation. unfortunately it's controlled by caltrans i think, but here are three things we suggest that we do if we had control over it. number one, increase the yellow light to one or two seconds that would help a lot and versus when they cross the street and running the red light. number two, this might not be as popular but i would fight like crazy to get the over pass pedestrians to go over than rather than

a campaign to address this at the state level in 2010. we got a law passed in california that is continuing to go to new states. we are excited about that. we're launching more cities. you will see this in more areas. the neat part about what happens with get around is it is building a community. people know who they live next to each other and can help each other out. that is a common theme we have heard. we're also helping the environment because it takes cars off the road. less people have to own cars. never having owned a car, i think that is a good thing. it helps me live a healthier lifestyle. i am excited to be on the panel. >> thanks, jessica. i was putting together a presentation recently with the logos of companies in the sharing economy on the map near our office at eco dash working place --at a coworking place. i counted 20 share economy places in my neighborhood. there are new companies launched every week. this is just a small sample, some the leaders in san francisco. jay, give us some background on the sharing economy working group and how you think it benefits san francisco
be to make compliance with existing laws and regulations more clear and more easy for local residents. london, for example, is doing a great job of this in anticipation of the olympics. they have run out of hotel rooms, and they realize that the whole purpose of the olympics was to create economic development in some of the most underserved areas of the city, and they are not getting that. we will be working collaborative lee to come up with a solution to solve that problem. they have created a wonderful website that clearly states what you need to do to be compliant. >> that is what christopher is doing in london then, right? >> yes. >> one more question for jay, and i think we should open up for questions from everyone here. tell us what existing city initiatives -- you know, this -- the schering economy working group will interface with or connect with, and how does it fit in with existing strategic goals and plans of the city? >> i think our director of environment in our city has issued a goal for 2020, being mission -- emission free, carbon neutral. that is something that when you think

or someone else for 72 hours. we need to enact laura's law and mr. dufty is working on that and finding housing for these individuals but not to keep going back to the economy but one solution is improve the economy so we can improve these people's lives. thank you. >> thank you. >> l the homeless problem it's very, very interesting because you know some cities don't -- i think one of the reasons we do have a problem is because of the wonderful social services that we have here in this city and unfortunately as someone who has sat on several committees it's disheartening that just across the east bay, even if you go to oakland, it changes drastically and i think it's one of the reasons people come to san francisco. do they all live here? absolutely not. and i think we have to get tough with this issue and the housing authority truly needs some restructuring, so that they can do their mandate which is to house people because that's another issue, but there is money missing there, so i think we have to be tough with that and it's like tough love but because we do care and it's going ha

with the city. my wife went to college here. one of my brothers went to law school here, and he still lives in a city and practices law here. older son also went to law school. but he does not live in a city. my youngest son does, however, with his family. he lives here. moreover, my wife has an aunt and cousins who live in the city. so i still have very strong connections to land. now, tonight i'm going to discuss abraham lincoln stroll, 1860-1861. more specifically, i want to talk about why abraham lincoln rejected any meaningful compromise. following his election as president november 1860, the country the script but a crisis. because many southerners feared lincoln and his republican party. republican party was a northern party, and proudly so. but it did not have a significant southern connection. lincoln was elected without a single electoral votes from any of the 15 slave states, and only four border states, missouri, kentucky, maryland and delaware did he get any popular vote. and they are nearly a handful. for the first time in the nation's history, a party without any notable sout
, corporations, unions, other associations, not permitted to make contributions. that has been the law for more than 40 years. they are allowed to spend their own money independently of the campaign if they want to put cannot make such a patient. typically, presidential candidates raise money at the maximum level, they are well known nationally, lots of wealthy individuals and groups that want to support them. the obama campaign stands out in that respect of it. it is also importantthan 40 yea. they are allowed to spend their own to note, the caller is making another race has been more focused in many respects on a small number of individual people. these people have contributed hundreds of millions of dollars to the process. i think the number that get you into a majority of the money, about 60% of the outside money, has been raised from about 200 individuals. the number of people you could fit on an airplane have respecta small number of individual people. these people have contributed hundreds of millions of dollars to the process. i think the number that get you into a majority of the money
requirements, changed the federal law, and moved this building from a clinic and put the hospital in. we are literally already have the building and just forced the hospital in and i keep on thinking, that is, you know, somebody willie brown's shoes that he had a nice pair of shoes he didn't wear, except for church every sunday. one day he couldn't fit the shoe, you know? that was the only pair of shoe he had. so, he said, rose, i just shoved my foot into the shoe, even though it did not quite fit. but it looked nice when i was sitting down. so that is exactly what we did with the clinic next door. it didn't fit, it was not built for a hospital. but we just jammed everything in to make it work. and behold, 30 years later, now we have to build a new one because of new regulations and new laws. but anyway, that changed my whole life, my relationship with the community, and respect for some of our family associations, of what they have accomplished before us. so this is where we are at. and what we are doing is very small compared to what they had to do years ago when the condition was not
're doing and the other possibility is that because the function may be mandated by law, and we really do want to have that oversight work well, you might have to really take a look at the functioning of that committee. everyone agrees that the oversight is huge. there is billions of dollars at stake. it impacts the entire economy and that is one of the reasons that i think the problems are persisting. the other thing that is going on it's in the qwon connecticut context of the state mandate and the oversight that was intended from what i personally saw it's not functioning it's should. thank you. [speaker not understood] i serve on the puc citizen advisory committee. i did want to speak in support of an extension. i'm not sure if this is the right amount of time, if it should be more or less. i'm happy to work with supervisor farrell and others to look at things that we could tweak about the composition or the reporting, so that it is more effective. i have heard a number of concerns over time about whether it's being too -- no effective enough -- no enough -- we certainly have a ge

[laughter] >> jon: while the economy is not yet socialized, islamists burn effigies of obama, the stock market doubled, limbaugh and hannity blather on, gun rights have expanded and cars remain legal... [laughter] ...the point is... [applause] but after obama's inauguration, there was no time to reevaluate failed predictions because the bull [bleeped] harvest of obama's presidency would wait for no man. >> barack obama met with king abdullah. and what did he do? he bowed. >> free obama phones. free obama money. >> wealth redistribution. >> $200 million a day on the india trip. >> why doesn't he show his birth certificate? >> we've got acorn, we've got community organization. >> the rapper common. >> global apology tour. >> death panel. >> the obama indoctrination. >> obama brand reparations. >> obama is destroying this country. >> the mosquing of america. >> we're establishing lit
to just accept what they give you and then that becomes law because they are making laws to fit them self-and their situation whether you like it or not. and i tell you, make sure that every site signed off not only just treasure island, but hunters point also. those sites, you cannot put people on those areas if it has not been signed off by an expert who is an expert in the field of radiation. thank you. >> thank you, mr. woods. i'm going to call up more speakers. i have becky hope. ciandra connolly, and la shandra price. whoever is next needs to come up. >>> good evening, i'm becky hogue and i'm a resident of treasure island. i still believe in the project. i sat here last year, asked you to let us go on with the project. maybe i still believe in fairy tales, but i believe it's going to happen and i want it to be safe. i have two questions. this thought line number, on a friday evening at 9 o'clock at night, i drive by a gate that has lots of trucks and everything in it. the gate is wide open, lights are on, nobody is there. if i call this hotline number, there is not going to be anyon
order starting yesterday at 6:00'. all businesses required by state law to be closed. most folks have either gotten out of town or they're hunkering down, although a lot of folks here are still sticking around. i'm little bit surprised by that because yesterday i was talking to the governor of delaware. and he was saying that yesterday -- keep in mind this was around 4:00 yesterday in the afternoon. he was telling me that at that point in time, it was just as bad as hurricane irene and we were still so many hours away from getting the heart of hurricane sandy. so it is still 350 miles away from us, the center of it at least. lots of road closures here. the bayside in particular already seeing some significant flooding. there is going to be a mandatory travel ban essentially in effect for this area of rehoboth beach starting at 5:00 a.m. this morning. local law enforcement says they are not going to be taking any chances. they are going to be turning around everyone. nobody is going to be allowed to be driving on the streets except for law enforcement personnel. and hopefully us the me
democrat voted against and did not become law and the government did not shut down. >> moderator: gentlemen let me jump ahead to a topic i was thinking about taking up a little later but since it's on the table congressman's dold your opponent says that on the 20 most important votes he did not break with your leaders even want once and not let the tea party to pull congress to the friends. what is your response to that? dold: my response is that was 24 votes if "the washington post" is correct. 24 this was passed with the majority and 10 of those votes danny hoyer voted with but do you know what's interesting about those votes? not a single vote talks about health care or the environment and not a single vote talks about transportation infrastructure. not a single one of those votes were dealing with education or a single one on gun control. all things that i think are important to people in the tenth district and i think are critical votes get my opponent doesn't want to talk about it. schneider: if you look at the
inheritinga $1 trillion deficit i signed to a trillion dollars of spending cuts into law. john: he signed the sending cuts? >> they cut some stuff. john: what he was saying was that after the next ten years, instead of increasing spending by the 10 trillion i wanted to i will increase it by just seven and a half trillion. isn't that deceit? >> well, it is kind of going -- john: a $2 trillion spending cut. >> it's easy in kind of broad strokes to say, oh, we should not spend all this money. bbt the real challenge is looking at these things and making judgments and value judgments about what it is that we wanted to as a society. do we want to spend money on defense, educate kids, have cops and firefighters, decent roads. john: does local government responsibity. >> sometimes the federal government gets into that's. john: he is keeping an embassy with 15,000 americans. he wants to spend more on defense, not as much as romney, but more. he wants to spend on everything. >> i'm not going to disagree in fight you on every one of these issues because there are some things that i wish we would cut
the law for more than 40 years and it still is. they're about to spend their own money independently of the campaign if they want to but they can't make contributions. presidential candidates raise money at the national level. there are a loft of wealthy individuals who support them. so the obama campaign stands out in that respect a little bit. the caller is making another point which is that the money in this race this year has been much more focused in many respects on a small number of individual people. the attention in this spending is focused on a small number of people who have contributed hundreds of millions of dollars to the process. i think the number that gets you to a majority of the money -- about 60% of the outside money has been raced from about 200 individuals. so the number of people you could fit on an airplane have been an important group in funding these outside efforts this year. and that's different and i think we need to watch to see whether those financial resources can become more important in elections. that's a question whether this has been effective or
-thinking immigration policy. >> around the world waiting to come to this country and willing to respect our laws. i support legal immigration. i think we need changes to our immigration laws so that immigration is based more on talent and hard work and ability and skill so we have a pro-america immigration policy. with respect to children who are brocket here by their parents at the young age, i think we need a solution to the problem. congressman asked me last week if i had been in the house would i have voted. yes is the answer. the bill never made it through the senate. we need bipartisanship approaches i look forwarding with working with marco ruin ya to make sure a loss passes not that a single faction can pass something to the house. that's the difference between the house and the senate. the priority when i was there to secure the border. that's opened up opportunities to reform our immigration system. heinrich: wush of one of the thing things things is border patrol agencies to the board and hundreds of new custom about. that doesn't fix the underlying issue. we have proactive community. th
to education. it's the law. so vote for question seven. so we can stop spending all that money here, and keep maryland money in classrooms like mine.

, you have to enforce the laws. but in terms of making sure that we can have different kinds of approaches to car sharing and not just have sort of a reactive. this doesn't fit into current models we have there for, we have to shut it down. >> okay. so, i want to make sure what kind of parceling out some of these different kinds of vehicle services. so, there are peer-to-peer car sharing where people maybe have a car in their garage and through some website somebody else can access that vehicle when it's free and they come over and they hand off the key and they drive off. so, it's kind of like an informal version of the traditional model. when you're done, you return it back to that spot and they use different website platforms or maybe apps to make those connections. those are really kind of outside of our regulatory sphere. i don't think, and i don't believe that the cpuc has -- i think it's outside of theirs as well. there are one-way car sharing models that there's one here that is using off-street spaces. i think the city has been, you know, is aware of and i think happ

's an emerging problem and unfortunately our laws really haven't kept pace with this problem. it's a commonsense measure and it's something that people haven't been tracking because we thought of it as an ancient, you know, problem that again was from a nursery rhyme. but it's absolutely reel as real as you have heard today and this legislation is a great step towards actually [tkra-egs/] the nish of bed bug infestations we have in the city. >> [tkpwao-frplt/] this legislation will help me because when you write, it will help me explain to her what she needs to do. bed bugs can happen to the cleanest people. i have tried to complain a visitor could have brought it in, but she can't understand. she is assuming if she reports it to her landlord she could get evicted or lose all of her stuff and all of those things, also make it difficult for me to try to solve the problem. i have virtually no authority with her landlord to solve the problem. and so a list of things that spell out what everybody needs to do would greatly help, i believe, me, even other individuals who are trying to help people who
